Pierce 75 ft. Aerial Truck

The 2008 Aerial Truck provides an excellent resource for a variety of courses offered by the academy. Because of the reduced weight of the aluminum ladder we were able to mount it on a truck with a single rear axle which allows for getting this apparatus into tighter spaces.
